Event Address: 
Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

The Canadian Grand Prix draws crowds of up to 300,000 people, and is one of the sport's best-attended events.

The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is a street circuit located on a man-made island in the St Lawrence River. Normally a leafy island,  populated by walkers, cyclists and joggers, it is transformed in the days before the race into a world-class track. Barriers are placed very near the track, catching many drivers out. A famous trap is the so-called Mur de Québec on the outside exit of the final chicane; it ended the race for three champions in 1999 hand has been nicknamed the "wall of Champions".
